The chicken tikka Masala is amazing. Service is often slow, but enjoy! I've not been adventurous enough to try other things - the chicken tikka Masala is great!!

I travel all over and dine in many restaurants of all levels. I usually don't write reviews though I should, but in this case I feel I need to. The service at this restaurant is terrible and it is not because they were busy. We came in to the restaurant and were ignored. We wait long to be seated. After... More

First time having Indian food. Everything was fantastic. Well seasoned hot out of the kitchen. I was able to see the cook handling the food and making it from scratch from where I sat, a big plus knowing it's made to order. My only complaint is the server who I suspect is the owner. No help with the menu, I'm... More

This is an authentic Indian restaurant featuring authentic dishes. The atmosphere is quiet and peaceful. Chai tea is plentiful. They have an all you can eat lunch buffet daily featuring dishes like Aloo Gobi and Tikka Masala. Favorites of my family are the Aloo Tikki, Cucumber Raita, the various curries, and of course plenty of fresh Naan bread! Most people... More

This used to be my favorite restaurant. It has steadily going downhill for the past 6 years. Once in awhile you can get good service but for the most part the staff goes out of their way to ignore you. I have had to refill my water glass in the bathroom. The bathroom by the way lacks paper towel and... More

The ambiance was upscale but the prices were surprisingly moderate. I ordered the Lamb Rodan Josh and it was served with a warming chafing dish and was very well spiced. I've never seen that in any reastaurant. My wife ordered the Chicken Tikka (a tandoori) and it was served sizzeling hot. We also orderd a side of tasty basmati rice... More

Service was pretty much non-existent. We had plates sitting on the table for our entire visit (we had the buffet). The Chai tea and sodas included in lunch buffet were a plus, but the food was mediocre. The food was cold. The chicken tikka masala was lacking chicken, and the tandoori chicken tasted like fish. However the gulab jamun (dessert... More

I've been here twice, once for the lunch buffet with my friend who does not usually get Indian food (his wife dislikes it). I was impressed enough that I for sure wanted to visit with my wife (who has been to India and Bangladesh and lived for almost two decades in the the Bay Area with all the great Indian... More

We travel quite often and India House has the best Indian Food ever. Especially the Lamb dishes, well seasoned, lean and tender.
